Carlos Kameni analyses Ter Stegen and Keylor Navas for SPORT

first_imgMarc-Andre ter Stegen and Keylor Navas represent two models of different types of goalkeeper. The style of the German has nothing to do with that of the Costa-Rican. However one thing unites them—they keep net for huge teams and are accustomed to play games in which they may only have to intervene four or five times.  29/11/2016 Upd. on 30/11/2016 at 04:01 CET Real Sociedad striker Carlos Vela’s dig at Barcelona’s MSN Of course Barcelona and Madrid always have two great goalkeepers defending their goals. Each one in their own way, but both of international quality. Both arrive at the Clasico after a season where they have ‘moved’ a bit. Ter Stegen has become the regular starter after Claudio Bravo left, while Keylor suffered an injury which kept him out for various weeks. But now they are incontestable in their sides.  Kameni analiza a los porteros del clásico: ter Stegen – Navas, dos estilos opuestos In contrast to Ter Stegen, Keylor is a goalkeeper with amazing reflexes. He has shown enormous agility between the sticks, capable of reacting in extreme situations. He is one of those goalkeepers who can save a shot in any moment with any part of his body.  TER STEGEN: MASTER WITH HIS FEET This is a detail that can pass unnoticed but in the end is very important. Players like Ter Stegen have to accustom themselves to going minutes without participating in the play at all and when they are involved it could be because of a clear threat on their goal. And this demands mental strength and sober mindedness, which is what he has shown. Keylor seems to have a slight advantage. Madrid are playing better and their defence is secure. Meanwhile Barcelona are not as firm as in other seasons and the team has let in more goals, and the defence has suffered various injury absences. But this counts for little in games like the Clasico. They are clashes that are decided by small details and the goalkeepers are key.  From my point of view what he needs to improve at is his aerial work. Ter Stegen does not dominate. However you have to take into account that currently, given the size of centre-backs, few goalkeepers do deal with the crosses and balls in. IN SPORT.ES Between the sticks he is what you would say is a sober goalkeeper, in that he does what he needs to to save the ball, without over-the-top moves. In terms of reflexes he is not especially gifted, he is not a cat with amazing reactions, using his hands and feet to make saves nobody thought he could make. But he is very solid in these aspects. KEYLOR NAVAS: AMAZING REFLEXES RELATED STORIES Navas is used to being well protected, knowing that few teams will have the opportunity to step foot in Madrid’s area, and in many cases will try their shots from some distance. It’s not easy to play against or get many shots against a Madrid goalkeeper. Keylor does not do as well when it comes from moving the ball out from the back. He’s not a goalkeeper who commits huge errors, imprecisions with passing, but he doesn’t do as well as Ter Stegen and prefers to hit the ball long instead of taking unnecessary risks. Carlos Kameni What you notice most at first is how easy it is for him to move the ball with his feet. He shows a security that you see very little in a goalkeeper. He has great precision that any other player on the pitch would like and with both feet too. The second grand virtue is his ability one on one. He knows how to bear the rival until the last moment, going to ground many times when the attacker has chosen his path and Ter Stegen can work out where the ball will go. This second more or less makes the difference, making the opponent nervous and the goal smaller, and himself bigger. last_img read more

Heroku: Ruby Platform Sees 50 Percent Increase in Apps Since November

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting alex williams A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Heroku is an example of a service that is making it infinitely easier for developers to develop and manage applications. It’s part of a new breed of platforms emerging that are growing in popularity.We’ll see if Heroku will grow 100 percent over the span of a year. That would mean 80,000 apps. Seems plausible, doesn’t it?center_img Flightcaster uses Heroku to serve the application. But the actual data analysis is done through Amazon S3 where Hadoop manages the data analytics. The data is passed from Heroku to Amazon S3 and then back to Heroku where it is served back to the customer making the request. Related Posts The number of apps hosted on the Ruby platform Heroku has increased 50 percent since November, pointing out how cloud-based platforms are becoming the norm for the capabilities the services provide in terms of testing and reliability.Heroku had more than 40,000 apps on its platform last November. Now more than 60,000 apps are using the Heroku service. Heroku’s success is not alone. Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Rackspace are rapidly expanding. AWS announced its expansion to the Asia Pacific region this past week. In its announcement, AWS featured Kim Eng, one of Asia’a largest security brokers. The firm said the availability of the AWS service helped minimize its latency for its KE Trade iPhone application.Rackspace developer Mike Mayo built the company’s latest iPad app for customers to monitor Rackspace cloud networks. He said the cloud provides a way for developers to test with better efficiency. For example, using cloud platforms, apps are continually tested for bugs. Those bugs can be fixed one at a time as they pop up. That’s easier than doing a build and then fixing the 20 bugs that are discovered.HerokuHeroku is a Ruby-on-Rails platform that according to the company web site “eliminates the need to manage servers, slices or clusters.” Developers focus on the code and that’s pretty much it.Heroku hosts the Flightcaster application, an interesting example of a service that uses two cloud providers to serve its app. Flightcaster is a service that checks your flight to see if it is on time. It can predict up to six hours in advance if your flight will be late. Tags:#cloud#cloud computing#news#Trends last_img read more

Cleveland Indians week in review Struggling offense plagues Tribe on the road

The start of the Cleveland Indians’ second road trip looked like déjà vu from the disappointing 2009 season.Cleveland managed a 2-4 record in the first six games of the trip, including an 8-1 win at the Minnesota Twins, which was the first win for the Indians at the Twins’ new Target Field.None of the six games was decided by fewer than five runs, including two shutout losses, one to Minnesota and the other to the Oakland Athletics.Studs: Fausto Carmona and Mitch Talbot. Carmona is 3-0 with a 2.96 ERA in four starts, and Talbot has been a huge surprise, going 2-1 in three starts with an ERA of 2.25.Duds: The offense. As it stands, the Indians’ offense has the second-fewest runs in the American League with 60, ahead of only the Baltimore Orioles. Thirteen of Cleveland’s 60 runs have been RBIs from outfielder Shin-Soo Choo.Up Next: The Indians finish up the road trip with three games against the Los Angeles Angels beginning today, followed by a weekend series against the American League Central Division-leading Twins. read more

Board May Ask Lawmakers To Remove FlatTax On Marijuana

first_imgLeif Abel, owner of Greatland Ganja in Kasilof: “So in essence we are paying the tax before the money has been made on the product, because the actual money comes from when the retailers sells that product to the end consumer. So, we’ve got a tax structure where the tax has to be paid on the product far before the end consumer ever pays for it, by the cultivation company who created it.”  Story as aired: Audio PlayerJennifer-on-pot-tax.mp3VmJennifer-on-pot-tax.mp300:00RPd The current tax is $50 per ounce for bud or flower, and $15 per ounce for other plant parts. The board next meets in April in Nome. According to the Director of the Board, Erica McConnell, the board will consider whether or not to send the resolution to the legislature at their next meeting in April. During the meeting on Thursday, January 25, the board heard public testimony from marijuana growers and retailers that have suggested in particular that the $15 per ounce tax on other plant parts may be too high.

Best Life Returns Tanned Rested Digitally Enhanced

first_imgEditor’s Note: This story originally appears on FOLIO: sister site minonline.com Three years after folding (or putting on ‘hiatus’) its men’s lifestyle title, Rodale brings Best Life back to newsstands this week. Scheduled to stay at retail for the coming quarter, Best Life revives much of the content mix that made it a favorite among many affluent male readers for years: celebrity, style, high end goodies. In the premiere issue contributors include John Grisham, Dr. Mehmet Oz, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, ABC’s Christopher Cuomo and Weight Watchers CEO David Kirschoff. Hugh Jackman is the cover star.In addition to high profile authors, the issue will have its familiar blend of style and advice. One article will advise on managing a college fund. Another feature tips on getting a fast car without enraging your wife. There is the requisite health content this being a Rodale pub that is aligned with Men’s Health.A tablet and iPhone edition of Best Life have been released, both using the Adobe platform that Men’s Health also leveraged for cross-device deployments. Best Life’s last issue was May 2009, and it left the market with a circulation of more than 500,000, Rodale tells minonline. The print run this time is 300,000. Two issues are planned for 2013 pending sell-through of this issue. Returning as Best Life editor-in-chief is Stephen Perrine (a longtime lieutenant to MH editor-in-chief David Zinczenko as Men’s Health Books publisher/editor-in-chief), and he tells us that calls for the much-loved magazine’s return have come from both readers and advertisers. He says there has been a resurgence in the magazine’s target market. “The menswear business, for example, has been growing much faster than women’s wear,” he says. “We believe that men more than ever are looking for guidance on how to manage their careers, their finances, their families and still have time to enjoy their own lives as well.” Perrine is expecting the new channels of distribution across the digital editions to play an even greater role now in helping the brand reach its target since its “hiatus” that started three years ago.The return of Best Life is another indication that print publishers are seizing opportunities at the high end of the market. Recent research has suggested that magazines are most resilient in their power and readership among the most affluent audiences.last_img read more
